Just wondering.
Will having a headertank cause any problems on my stratus. I have a YS 91SR in it.
Also has anyone had a problem with the fuel magnet not getting to every side of the fuel tank when you turn the heli in different orientations?

thanks

I haven't had any problems with fuel magnet. The only benefit of header is extra flying time. Downside extra unnecesery plumbing.

Just do it.

It isn't totally necessary that the fuel magnet get in all the corners. As the fuel is sloshing around, it keeps the fuel magnet covered in fuel.

Header is not needed.

headers are just extra weight and more possibility of a problem with yet another clunk and more fuel tubing. the fuel magnet does an excellent job of getting every last drop out of the flight.

It helps balance the heli,and it has 3oz more fuel.I use a fuel magnet with the fittings just as the instruction say to mount them and it sucks ELD out of the tank. Mabey version 4 of the OS 91 will be a charm.
It's a hard plastic rectangle 3oz tank.
